Is NanoShuttle biocompatible?

PC3 livedeadYes! NanoShuttle is a biocompatible nanoparticle assembly of gold, iron oxide, and poly-L-lysine. It magnetizes cells by electrostatically and non-specifically attaching to cell membranes. No effect has been seen on proliferation, viability, metabolism, inflammatory or oxidative stress. By 7-8 days, the NanoShuttle will release off the cell and into the extracellular space of the culture. Check out our whitepaper on the topic for more information!
